Rantglass - because that's how things are.

Building blocks.

Made to stand precariously on a rickety chair,
Only to infamously butcher a well-known children’s lullaby,
And fail spectacularly at desperate attempts to blow out the candle.

The prank is all in good fun, sure; but getting just one miserable scoop of ice cream drowning underneath a shower of whipped cream in return, hardly compensates for the eternal embarrassment and sneering snickers that come soon after.

For all that trouble, I reckon I should have been given a multi-tiered banana split instead, made up of all kinds of ice cream flavours imaginable (from the usual plain but popular chocolate, to the dubious-sounding combination of sardines and brandy), and generously sprinkled with all manner of nuts, chips, berries, seeds and raisins. And provided free for the whole year round, of course.

  1. Just wanted to say hello. Been popping in on your blog for some time, and I really enjoy reading your work. Very evocative; very rich. Do keep it up! =)

  2. John – Hi! Well, updates have been miserably sporadic here, but thanks for still making the effort to surf on in every now and then. :)

  3. No worries. So far, I haven’t come across anyone who writes an entire blog in the style that you do. It’s almost… well, literary!

  4. John – Eeep, you’re heaping expectations on me now. :D “Literary” is simply too high an honour! I suppose Rantglass is just somewhat, well… different; in that it’s not quite done reporting-style, as is the norm with blogs out there (but that’s mostly because I have nothing much to report on about my life anyway…).

  5. Lyrical, then. =)

    Are you Facebook? Feel free to add me if you are.

  6. John – I am on Facebook, but I’m hardly active there (no virtual cities or runaway farm animals to tend to). So if you don’t mind the addition of an extremely quiet person in your list, then… yeah, sure. :P

  7. No worries. My email is johnling83@gmail.com. =)

  8. John – Will do. ;)
